If I could, I’d cook everything in foil. Everything. But for now, these fajitas will have to do.

Now with this method, you have sizzling tender veggies and shrimp, tossed in taco seasoning and all conveniently wrapped in foil. This makes for easy serving and clean-up is an absolute breeze. You probably don’t even need serving plates here.

Best of all, you can bake these right at home, grill them in your backyard or cook them on camping trips. It doesn’t get easier (or simpler) than that!
